For a walking robot with high constant body speed, the dynamic effects of the legs on the transfer phase are dominant compared with other factors. This paper presents a new force distribution algorithm to maximize walkable terrain without slipping considering the dynamic effects of the legs on the transfer phase. Maximizing the walkable terrain means having the capability of walking on more slippery ground under the same constraint, namely constant body speed. A simple force distribution algorithm applied to the proposed walking model with a pantograph leg shows an improvement in the capability of preventing foot-slippage compared with one using a pseudo-inverse method.
